This 4-Year-Old Who Read Over 1,000 Books Got To Be Librarian Of Congress For A Day

No comments
It's practically a tradition for older generations to look down on following generations —  usually because their taste in music, political views, style of communication, and values are going to unravel the fabric of society.
But perhaps millennials will be the ones to break that cycle... Mostly because the generation coming after us definitely knows what they're doing. In case you needed proof, look no further than one little girl from Georgia. 


Four-year-old Daliyah Marie Arana made the trip from her hometown of Gainesville, Georgia to Washington, D.C. for a special mission: to serve as the Library of Congress' Librarian For The Day.  

ler to dream of wandering through the most impressive library in the country, but Arana isn't "most preschoolers." In fact, she's read over 1,000 books.  


During her tour of the library, Arana read books to the library staff and viewed the children's section to provide recommendations for improvements.
Her suggestion? Install whiteboards in the library hallways, so children can practice writing on them.


Naturally, official Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden tweeted photos of Arana's big day as Librarian, noting the four-year-old's impressive accomplishment.

It was fun to have 4-year-old Daliyah Marie Arana of Gainesville, GA as "Librarian For The Day." She's already read more than a 1,000 books.


The preschooler, clearly, has some pretty big goals for her future.

"I read 1,000 books by the time I was three years old, and I hope to read 100,000," Arana, who learned how to read at two years old, told CBS 46 last month. 
How did this love of reading begin? 
When she was just two-and-a-half, her parents enrolled her in a Georgia Public Library literacy program called 1,000 Books B4 Kindergarten. The program, which relies on an honor system, encourages parents to log all the books that the children read or have read to them. 
Arana completed the challenge in October. 
The aspiring librarian wants to share her love of readings with everyone: "I like to check out books every day," she told The Gainesville Times. "And I want to teach other kids to read at an early age, too."


Immediately, Twitter fell in love with this ambitious and inspiring little girl.... And people couldn't help but notice she's already more accomplished than most of us adults.

@LibnOfCongress This girl has got it more together than I do, and I'm 7 times older than she is.

@LibnOfCongress i'm sorry we need to know more. What are her favorite books? Favorite part of the day? Favorite everything??

@LibnOfCongress so grateful you're the librarian representing our profession to the nation. You make us proud! ❤



Even Arana's hometown chimed in to express their pride. 

@LibnOfCongress @capnjoy Daliyah is from my hometown, and now I'm star-struck. She will surely make us proud! ❤️

@LibnOfCongress The Hall County Library is so proud of our reader Daliyah and all the children in Ga.'s 1000 Books B4 Kindergarten program.

Are you melting yet?


Oh, and to the HATERS, doubting this kiddo's reading ability, why don't you check out this video of her READING A COLLEGE LEVEL SPEECH?



Hopefully Arana enjoyed her trip to the nation's capital! Perhaps she'll run for office someday. We definitely need a leader like her.
